You asked this in the wrong zone. Anyways, the answer is easy:

There are softwares (like ShadowUser) which you can use. When you install them, the user can do whatever he likes with the computer (browsing the internet, saving files to the desktop, etc) but after the computer is restarted, all of them will be gone! It means, when the computer restarts, all files and settings are reverted back to how they were before.

This way, you will never worry about the files saved, etc.

You could use Faronic's Deep Freeze on the sytem.  This software will allow the system to restore on reboot automatically so nothing can be 'left' on it.  What is nice is that it does not prevent anybody from doing anything in particular so looking at pictures or printing documents etc will be no problem.

This can also be done by keeping a full backup of the system then restore the backup after the system has been used.  This will do the job its just not as handy as a fully automated setup like Deep Freeze.

You could also try a "LiveCD" distribution of one of the many Linux distributions out there. You basically pop in the cd/dvd , boot with it, and you have a full blown OS that is "read only" for the most part, yet has all the "features" most people would be familiar with ( FireFox browser and tools for digital cameras) - I'm just not sure if you get live cd versions that are completely read only - some (if not all) may use a small bit of your current harddrive for volatile data - but it would be neatly packaged in one folder, making it pretty easy to manage - best of all, your host OS will be completely unmodified by users - "power users" may however be able to mount the host OS filesystem if they really wanted to...
